Saransk - Mordovia ArenaSaransk - Mordovia Arena

21.05.2017: Mordovia Arena is the new home ground of Mordovia Saransk and also another playing venue of the Russian World Cup. It is yet another example of a stadium, which will have a reduced capacity after the World Cup. In this particular case, the capacity for World Cup matches will be nearly 45,000 seats and subsequently, it will be decreased by 15,000. Nevertheless, the new stadium will still be a nice change for Mordovia fans. The current home ground – the Star Stadium – has a capacity of 10,000 spectators, as well as the unpopular athletics track.

Fiorentina hatching plans to build a new stadium


Florence - new stadiumFlorence - new stadium03.04.2017: Considering present day standards, the Fiorentina stadium may be deemed as quite outdated, just like most stadiums in Italy. In comparison with other European countries, it is clear that Italy lags behind in the matter of building new stadiums or renovating the old ones. The obvious exception is the new Juventus Stadium, opened in 2011, and the renovated stadium in Udine. However, lack of financial means mars or at least postpones these plans, which, for the most part, exist only in theory. A new home ground would certainly please AS Rome, Lazio Rome, Palermo, as well as Fiorentina.

Bilbao - San Mamés BarriaBilbao - San Mamés Barria23.09.2014: Estadio San Mamés, the home ground of the Spanish club Athletic Bilbao, can be seen in all its splendour from September 2014.

Unfortunately, the old stadium could not offer such comfort as modern stadiums can. The new San Mamés is a truly worthy successor to the old one. The project to build a new stadium for one of the most successful clubs in the history of Spanish league was approved in March 2006.
